Multi-Vehicle Accident Saturday in Bakersfield

Investigators said a police patrol car was responding to calls for a shooting in the 1300 block of Niles Street when it collided into a white pickup at the intersection. The impact caused the patrol car to hit another vehicle parked in the area.

Shortly after 3 p.m., emergency crews arrived at the accident scene and immediately attended to the parties involved. Medical records indicated paramedics transported the driver of the pickup to a hospital for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries. The name of the patient remained unknown at this time.

Furthermore, authorities added two officers complained of pain after the incident.

Investigators handling the case continue to work to determine precisely what happened here and why.

A forensic examination of the patrol car, and the white pickup involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

Pending results of the investigation, the victim may have the right to a personal injury claim. Victims in similar cases are potentially entitled to seek compensation for damages including hospital bills, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
